Explicit Version. Knoxville, Tennesse based Straight Line Stitch traces its origins back to the turn of the millennium when a lineup vaguely recognizable from the modern-day membership presented a tag-team vocal style. This early shadow of the band laid the groundwork for a collective which is gradually improving via an assembly of the current members. Straight Line Stitch might previously have been known for their rather fast and heavy style, but the refinement of their music has been forged in an itinerary of relentless touring and the result is maturity as a band, in which they have improved their brand of metal significantly. Their signature sound has broadened over the years into a diverse amalgam of groove, hardcore, rock, thrash, and grind whose tonality runs the full spectrum of frantically random to upliftingly melodic, and their compositions strike a balance between accessibility for a wide general audience and progressiveness for more cerebral listeners.
